PARSIPPANY — For over 60 years the Woman’s Club of Parsippany-Troy Hills (WCPTH) has awarded high school scholarships and supported many other educational programs in the community.   Recently, members of the WCPTH welcomed their 2017 High School Scholarship Winners and parents to the club’s Salad Supper.  The club awarded a total of $10,000.00 in high school scholarships.  The recipients of $1,000.00 each: from Parsippany Hills High School: Julianne Caccavale, Marissa Gasbarro, Alexa Lynch and Vanessa Ting; from Parsippany High School: Adriana DiDio, Dhara Patel, Grace Santangelo, Asia Anne Tabili, Alexandra Tymikiw and Lillian Ye.

The student awards are not limited to high school seniors.  WCPTH awards students at other educational levels.   Each year, one male and one female student from the 8th grade graduating class at Brooklawn, Central and All Saints Academy are presented with a $50.00 Citizenship Award.  In elementary school, the club recognizes one 5th grade student from each of the town’s ten public elementary schools with a Reading Award which includes a $25.00 gift certificate to purchase a new book.  In total 28 students were honored by the club this June.  In addition, beginning this year, the Club will make a significant monetary donation to the General Federation of Women’s Clubs’ Success for Survivors Scholarship which assists those impacted by intimate partner violence pursue higher education.

WCPTH also sponsors a student delegate from both Parsippany high schools to attend Girls Career Institute (GCI).  As part of the GCI program, students attend workshops about various career choices and experience a sample of college life.   GCI is held at Douglass College, and is sponsored by the New Jersey State Federation of Women’s Clubs (NJSFWC) which is the largest volunteer women’s service organization in the state, providing opportunities for education, leadership training, and community service.  The Woman’s Club of Parsippany Troy-Hills is a proud member of NJSFWC since 1954 and was very pleased that Jean Revis, NJSFWC President, attended the Salad Supper.
